Kushner said on Fox News that Black Americans have to want to help themselves in order for the President's policies to help them. Kushner said Trump can't help Black people "break out of the problems that they're complaining about, but he can't want them to be successful more than they want to be successful."       Tropical Storm Zeta is expected to bring hurricane conditions to portions of the Gulf Coast as early as tomorrow.
